‘Jurassic World’ Bites Off Record Breaking $25.6 Million Monday

“Jurassic World” is showing few signs of slowing down after demolishing opening weekend records with a smashing $524.4 million debut.

The blockbuster sequel ripped into $25.6 million at the North American box office on Monday — a huge sum that ranks as the biggest non-holiday Monday in history. The previous record holder was “The Dark Knight,” which picked up $24.5 million in 2008.

“Jurassic World” continues what has been a monster year for Universal, which has also fielded “Pitch Perfect 2,” “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Furious 7.” Analysts predict the picture could end its global run with more than $1 billion in receipts. Along with “Furious 7,” it will mark the second Universal release this year to cross that benchmark.

Legendary co-financed the $150 million production, which Colin Trevorrow directed. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard co-star in the picture.
